FAST Covid-19 Policy Update as of 6/15/2020

Erin Crabtree
FAST Covid-19 Policy Update- 6/15/2020
EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY
 
As we have people traveling for summer vacations and in lieu of the outbreak at the University of Texas in their Athletic Programs, forcing them to shut down, we want to remind and lay out two (2) key points:
  1. If the swimmer has traveled-
    1. OUT OF THE STATE of Ohio, they must be symptom free for 72 hours before they are permitted to return to practice. 
    2. INTERNATIONALLY, they must be symptom free after a 14-day quarantine before they are permitted to return to practice.
RESPONSIBILITY OF THE PARENT/SWIMMER for TRAVEL: FAST will need to know, in writing, where the travel occurred; date of return to Ohio; end date of the 72-hour or 14-day quarantine PRIOR to the return to practice. 
Example: 
PLACE OF TRAVEL-
RETURN DATE TO OHIO-
END DATE OF SYMPTOM-FREE QUARANTINE-
 
2. POSITIVE TEST PROCEDURE: Should someone test positive in our membership the following measures will take place: 
a. The individual MUST let the Coaching Staff know immediately. 
b. The Summit County Health Department will be notified immediately upon FAST's knowledge of a positive test. FAST will then follow all instructions given to us by the Health Department.
c. The facility will be shut down for no less than 24 hours to deep clean and sanitize per Health Department guidelines.
*FAST has been recording attendance at every practice and has a map of where each swimmer is swimming each day for contact tracing purposes. 
 
If you any questions/concerns, please let the Coaches know. 
Thank you and Stay Healthy!
